Stories with GLBTQ Themes Welcomed - American Athenaeum: A Museum of Words (worldwide)

Post date: 05 June 2012
Submissions for American Athenaeum are now open and rolling. We are a print journal, committed to publishing four times a year. The first issue, Colossus, is scheduled for July. The following is the type of work we're seeking. Our finished collections are submitted to literary agents, Best American, PEN American, and the Pushcart Prize.

We are currently seeking fiction, non-fiction, and poetry in the following categories:
  • Stories that pay tribute to Japan or other places in the world that have suffered extensive calamities.
  • Stories with African-American or Native American, GLBTQ, themes welcome.

Please see the submission guidelines for other categories.

  • We accept fiction from authors worldwide. We accept reprints (the world is a big place and we want to help spread your name.) In your query, go ahead and tell us a little about yourself, why the piece is important to you.
  • Grant of Rights: Author grants first or reprint rights to American Atheneum to publish in "Issue Name" and only that issue, in print and electronically, worldwide.

At this time, our editors work on a volunteer basis, and our acceptance of publication does not include payment. If you would like to make a donation that will go toward paying authors, please do so below. Even the smallest amount can go a long way. Poetry, flash fiction, overseas authors receive an electronic copy of the completed issue. Fiction authors receive one copy of issue. All authors are given self-promo time in their written bio, and are more than welcome to submit an author review of their own books. Artists/photographers receive a full page of self-promo.


For submissions: via submishmash
